Auburn is planning on entertaining a large number of recruits this weekend. Some are already committed, some are leaning towards Auburn, and some are high on the Auburn wish list. Along with offensive line, Auburn is seeking at least one top running back. With the graduation of Mario Fannin, Auburn has only two true running backs on scholarship. At this time, they have three RBs scheduled to visit; Savon Huggins (ranked 7th nationally), Marlin Lane (ranked 8th nationally) and Jeremy Hill (ranked 21st nationally).
Auburn is also still pursuing linemen. OL Greg Robinson, who committed last week, is going to be in Auburn, along with OL Christian Westerman, currently committed to Texas, OL/DL Stephon Tuitt and DL DeVaunte Sigler. Don’t be surprised if at least one of these doesn’t commit after their visit.
Also expected this weekend are ATH Quan Bray, WR Sammie Coates, DB Erique Florence, LB Justin Garrett, ATH Louchiez Purifoy (currently committed to Florida), CB Jonathan Rose, LB Tony Steward and ATH C.J. Uzomah.
In other news, Auburn added to their awards case last night, as Cam Newton and Nick Fairley were named AP First Team All-Americans. Lee Ziemba was Second Team All-American, and Ryan Pugh was Third team All-American.
